[TRAINING]

This is the big question on every photographer’s mind…

How do I get MORE INQUIRIES??

If it’s booking season, and you’re looking at an empty contact form with no leads coming in, it can make you feel anxious at best and downright terrified at worst.

What if you don’t book enough jobs? What if things get desperate?

In this episode, I walk you through the action steps you need to take to build a marketing system that will bring in quality leads year after year. But be warned – this is not a show filled with short term tactics.

There’s certainly a few quick fixes I mention, but I’m going to tell you how to create a sustainable marketing strategy NOW that will build a rock solid business over the long term, so you’ll never have a scary booking season again.

About Us

We're Jeff & Erin

We're Jeff and Erin Youngren?? and it's our mission to help you thrive not just as a wedding photographer, but as a business owner. It?s time to set aside the stress and comparison of a hustle mindset, and build a life-giving business instead.

We met in college, got married, and started corporate jobs before we discovered (and fell in love with) wedding photography. But like many creative entrepreneurs, we were booking anything we could, strapped to our laptops and living dangerously close to burnout.

So we dug in and learned how to build a thriving business that supports our dream life ? instead of a joyless business that runs a stressed-out life.

Today, we photograph only 10 Dreamie weddings per year, but we also run two other wedding brands plus a commercial studio in San Diego, CA. And we do it by only working the hours that fit into our life. The other hours? We spend those living a joyful life raising our two beautiful sons, James and Samuel.

hugs,

Jeff and Erin
